How to Reach Old City Hall

It is important to know how to reach visit Old City Hall for all tourists looking forward to a trip to this monument. The Old City Hall of Colombo is an important place in Ceylonese culture and history and a very frequently visited tourist spot.  

The easiest way is definitely to take E03 Highway and follow it straight past Ragama and Peliyagoda to reach the monument. But this route has tolls along its course. A faster route might be to take E03 Highway and then peel off to Canal Road and follow it straight to the destination. This is how to reach visit Old City Hall by road from the nearest airport. Popular traveling options include tuk-tuk rides and cabs.

A similar approach to how to reach visit Old City Hall from Colombo Harbor, which is the closest harbor to town is applicable. The best route is to take AC6 Highway, but its use is restricted. A smarter route might be to take Colombo Port Main Road to AC20 and then move onto Darley Road via AC6. This thirty-minute journey (by car) is roughly eight and a half kilometers away from Colombo Harbor.  

Another solution is to take a train to Fort Railway station and then take a cab. The common routes include AC6, A2, and A4 Highways. They all take the same time to reach. The Tuk-tuk rides are particularly famous here.
